Galaxy Zac

By Ray O’Ryan
Illustrated by Colin Jack

I am so looking forward to this series reaching New Zealand. It is ideal for those children just off the reading colour wheel and reading their first chapter books.

Read what Galaxy Zack says on his own site.

“It is the year 2120 and Zack Nelson and his family are making the big move from Earth to the planet Nebulon. Zack is already nervous about starting school and making new friends, but it only gets worse when he dreams that his classmates are slimy aliens with tentacles, pizza comes covered in gross bugs, and he can never communicate with his Earth friends again! When Zack arrives at Sprockets Academy for his first day of school, he meets and befriends Drake Tucker, a Nebulite boy who also loves to explore and learn about the planets. All of the differences between Earth and Nebulon begin to pile up and make Zack miss his home in Dubbsville, Texas, even more. But things start to look up when he receives a mysterious surprise. What could it possibly be? ”

These are the titles coming soon:
Hello Nebulon
Journey to Juno
Prehistoric planet
Monsters in space

This is definitely a series I will be looking to add to my school library. In fact I know just which set of boys will be lining up for them early.
